For the new week, our technical outlook looks bearish, immediate support level is at 1.07 (WS1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 1.06 (WS2). For potential buyers, as the current momentum is bearish, we prefer to look at firm break of the week high of 1.09 as an important indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below week low of 1.07 would indicate selling pressure.

For the month of December, EURUSD is down by -1.14% or -123.6 pips lower.
